Statement/op-ed from Georgia Department of Public Health Northwest Health District health director

This virus cannot go from person to person that easily. It needs us to be close. It needs us to be within six feet. If we just distance ourselves, this virus can't sustain itself. With no changes to our behavior, one infected person will, on average, pass the virus to 2.5 people within five days. After 30 days, that figure would rise to a devastating 406 new infections.
